Steampunk Goes Cute

I just *love* this new Pink Girl digi stamp from Marlon Teunissen - it's cute and quirky, a little bit steampunk, a little bit sweet lolita, and a whole lot of fun. :)
I decided to go with a steampunk theme for my card but also a cute/sweet lolita style so I coloured the image with my Promarkers in shades of pastel pink and blue:
I recently picked up these papers from the new Chronology collection from Papermania and they were just perfect for this card. I inked the edges with soft grey ink and teamed them with some ribbon and lace and a greeting cut from textured matt silver card and then embossed with the Chronology embossing folder - despite its matt surface, this silver card has a lovely sheen when the light hits it:
I finished things off with a couple of Maya Road butterfly hatpins. :)

  6. Absolutely LOVE your card, Ali!! The layout you created is brilliant... the die cutted and embossed 'hello' is a perfect accent, and so are the wheels! Also love the background papers. She is coloured so beautiful and it looks great that you placed her to the corner.
    Hugs, Karina
